Truckee River is Ready to Ride!

You may have heard, and heard right, that the Truckee River bike trail has been flooded and portions of it have been completely under water this spring.  The Federal water managers that are in charge of Lake Tahoe’s water level have had all of the gates at the outlet dam open for more than a month now, to help reduce the overflow of snowmelt into the lake, and move the water to the reservoirs further downstream.  For a few weeks now, the bike trail has been clear and open with a couple of deep puddles, but we have confirmation from the Tahoe City Public Utilities District that the flow from the outlet dam is reduced, and the trail will be completely dry and usable this weekend.  The weather looks great, sunny and warm for a perfect summer kickoff, and we hope to see you here at Factory Bike!
